Tyra Walker receives 2016 Heroes of Hope award

Tyra Walker was presented the Lutheran Services of Georgia 2016 Heroes of Hope award last night at an event held at Heritage Sandy Springs.  More than 23 years ago, Tyra was selected by Truett Cathy to cast his vision of serving foster children. Serving in the role of director of WinShape Homes, Tyra helped WinShape grow from 4 to 12 homes with programs in Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. Tyra's love and compassion for children is evident. WinShape's houseparents on average serve 15 years, which speaks highly of the loving environment that Tyra has created at Winshape. Tyra was also selected in 2014 to serve on Governor Deal's Child Welfare Reform Council.  Together Georgia is honored to work side by side with Tyra Walker.  Congratulations, Tyra!
